Re: Sample McDonalds Budget

Same comment: You aren't SUPPOSED to be able to buy a house and pay the mortgage making minimum wage at McDonald's.

Just having A job doesn't mean you automatically get handed the house, 2.5 kids, 2 cars and a flatscreen. Gotta be more than entry-level menial work to get there.

$600 is more than fair if you assume you're sharing rent in a couple bedroom apartment, or splitting a house with a few other people. Pretty tough if you're going it alone, but still doable, depends on the area. And if you're splitting a place, the other utilities are likely much lower than listed, so there's actually a bit more available money than listed.
